The dark side of Christmas
How does the birth of Jesus fit into what we know of the political climate and rulers of the first century? Did Christmas really happen?
In this series of five talks, Al Stewart is looking at the beginning of Matthew’s gospel, and taking a serious and historical look at Christmas and the implications of the claims being made about the birth of Jesus.
This talk focusses on the threat that Jesus posed to King Herod's reign, the stars that prophesied a new King and Herod's barbaric response.
